> Open Call for Applications (Deadline: 30 June 2009)
> Transient Spaces – The Tourist Syndrome is an interdisciplinary
> project on the symmetries and asymmetries between contemporary tourism
> and migration, encompassing research, theory, practice, workshops,
> seminars, conferences and art exhibitions in Italy, Lithuania, Romania
> and Germany in 2009 and 2010.
> The Tourist Syndrome Summer Camp, 3 - 11 September 2009
> An integral part of the two-year project Transient Spaces – The
> Tourist Syndrome is the upcoming Tourist Syndrome Summer Camp held in
> Palanga (Lithuania), a renowned seaside resort on the Baltic Sea
> coast, from 3 to 11 September 2009.
> The Tourist Syndrome Summer Camp invites artists, architects, cultural
> producers, theorists, and academics to an interdisciplinary dialogue
> and exchange on new forms of mobility today, with a special focus on
> the relationship between tourism and migration. The eight-day summer
> camp will offer a diverse programme of workshops, lectures and
> presentations, and will be open to a maximum of fifty participants to
> be selected through this Open Call.
> The summer camp programme includes three main workshops held by
> international artists, practitioners and academics Cesare Pietroiusti
> (Rome/Venice), Krystian Woznicki (Berlin) and Michael Zinganel
> (Vienna/Graz), and an intense program of presentations, screenings and
> events by artists already involved in the project, and by the artistic
> directors and curators of Transient Spaces – The Tourist Syndrome. The
> workshops will highlight the many aspects of the tourism-migration
> relationship that exist in different European and non-European
> contexts and offer the opportunity to explore individual and
> subjective, as well as socio-political themes, with the goal of
> developing works of art and projects to be presented at the conclusion
> of the summer camp in Palanga and at the final, comprehensive
> exhibition in Berlin in 2010.
> Structured as a collective brain storming session on the topics of
> tourism and migration, the Tourist Syndrome Summer Camp will also
> offer convivial and informal moments, drawing from the tradition of
> Socialist plein air symposia, combining work (artistic and
> intellectual production) and leisure. The summer camp is organized in
> cooperation with Lithuanian art organization Meno Parkas (Kaunas).
> Participation in summer camp activities is free of charge.
> The selected participants will be responsible for their individual
> journeys to the workshop location of Palanga. Basic accommodation
> (double or triple room) is provided to the summer camp participants by
